CBS Television Stations

The CBS Television Stations are a group of American television stations owned by CBS Corporation. As of 2012, CBS Corporation owns 28 stations, broken down as follows: 14 are the key stations of the CBS Television Network (plus two satellites); nine are aligned with the CW Television Network, which is co-owned by CBS with Time Warner; three independent stations; two stations affiliated with MyNetworkTV, and one low-power outlet carrying MTV Tr3s programming.

The group was founded on May 24, 2000, after the merger of Viacom and the previous CBS Corporation, as the Viacom Television Stations Group; it was a merger of the Paramount Stations Group with CBS's owned and operated stations division. It was rebranded to its current name on January 3, 2006, after Viacom split itself into two publicly traded companies. However, the "new" Viacom is still controlled by National Amusements.

Currently many of CBSTS' stations, especially CBS outlets, use a common look in branding. One example is so-called "CBS Mandate" involving most CBS stations calling themselves "CBS " (e.g. WWJ-TV, which is allocated on virtual channel 62, brands as "CBS 62"). This is the same practice as many other O&O groups across the U.S. Only four CBS-owned stations do not use such a branding convention.

Famous quotes containing the words stations and/or television:

    The only road to the highest stations in this country is that of the law.
    William Jones (1746–1794)

    It is not heroin or cocaine that makes one an addict, it is the need to escape from a harsh reality. There are more television addicts, more baseball and football addicts, more movie addicts, and certainly more alcohol addicts in this country than there are narcotics addicts.
    Shirley Chisholm (b. 1924)
